Message from the Desk of Dean (Academic Programs)

The philosophy of teaching-learning at DAIICT is led by research. We encourage students to take challenges of societal needs and look for possible solutions through information and communication technology (ICT) that they learn in their regular classes. This methodology is not only inculcated in various post graduate programs but also in undergraduate studies. As a faculty, we are committed to create a healthy learning environment where research plays a major role. We are also committed to impart the best knowledge and practices. Students are expected to stay focused and get maximum possible from a set of learned faculty. Our main aim is to involve all stakeholders together so that institute grows in unison and earn a brand name for teaching and research in the field of ICT. No institute can grow without a bonding with alumnus and hence we put our best effort to stay connected with our alumnus for their constant feedbacks and suggestions. We are very sure that our innovative methodology of teaching-learning will set the institute as place of highly sought and reputed. Through this message, I personally am looking for all round cooperation from all concern.
